. during irene it was 4.4. we expect to double what we had in irene. that's the problem. that's what kicked in yesterday and that's why the mandatory evacuation order was kicked in. the storm is deep in low pressure, and we expect the wind field to push this water up through long island sound and just to give you an example. you can see what's going on here in terms of how high water is. it's below the sea wall, but it's probably going to be about a good third of the way up this pole. that brings it all the way back into the battery and probably into lower parts of manhattan as well. parts of wall street will probably flood, so we anticipate this water to be much higher. the only difference in it could be the fact that it's going to come up gradually as opposed to quick like with the storm surge. not gradual in like 20 minutes but maybe over an hour or so we see that water coming up and coming up. we see the tunnels here shut down. the brooklyn tunnels now shout done, the holland tunnel is closing at 2:00 this afternoon. that's an order from the governor. when you see things like that occur
as the rainfall forecast on the north side, there's not a lot. don't ft. big flooding like we had with irene but once you get to the south side that's the heavy amount so, again, veroni a veronica, sandy has intensified expect to get up to 90-mile-per-hour winds right before landfill this afternoon. we didn't want a stronger storm and it looks like we could be dealing with that shortly. >> what are you talking about, are you saying category 2, 3? >> it doesn't look like it will get to a category 2 and making that hybrid transition anyway so they probably won't go up to a category 2 but the fact the stronger the winds the more water this storm can push and that high tide cycle this morning and a couple of hours will be bad but the one tonight, that's the one that could be historic. >> bill, we'll check back with you. >>> much of southern new york will feel the biggest impact from this storm. right now we go to reporter tracy strahan of wnbc in rock way beach, this morning. tracy, what is it looking like right now? >> reporter: like these waves will quickly be approaches the boardwalk where we
of magnitude here. this is twice the number of impacted households as hurricane irene. hurricane irene was 1.2 million impacted households and this is 2.4 million impacted households. 1.2 million of the 2.4 million for pse&g, 935,000 from jcp & l. 195,000 from atlantic city electric and 45,000 from orange in rockland. during hurricane irene restoration took eight days for full restoration. for hurricane sandy, the full restoration may, in fact, take longer. full damage assessment will not be complete until 24 to 48 hours due to some of the weather delays. they cannot develop the timeframe for restoration until damage and estimates are under way and obviously these difficult weather conditions are making this more of a challenge. however the utility companies have reached out to other states for assistance and we are expecting additional linemen. servicemen and free clearing workers from states as far away as texas, indiana and folks coming in to us from canada. it will remain extremely dangerous in areas where trees and wires are down. ask people to use extreme caution and assume any wire yo
nervous. >> you think it's going to be bad? >> i think so. >> i'm worried. we lucked out with irene, and i don't know. this may be worse. >> nbc's tom strong traung is l rehoboth beach, delaware. any residents left? >> they have about eight hours, the governor issues a mandatory evacuation area. everybody must be out by 8:00. look down the beach, have you several dozen people trying to get their last glimpse. right now, low tide. looks pretty impressive. come high tide, around 6:30, it wouldn't be a surprise if we didn't see water coming up to this fence here. all around rehoboth beach, a lot of businesses boarded up. people making runs to the grocery store, water short, bread is short. people did what they could in terms of preparation. they had about eight hours, around that time, this area will be shut down. cut off the bridges and roads into here it won't be a very pleasant place to stay if the electricity is going to go out. which is a likelihood. 2,000 utility workers and we're talking about the maryland/dc area, baltimore areas, and states of emergencies in those areas as well. a lo
back there is a storm fence put up. as i understand it, when hurricane irene hit, it came about that far, maybe a little further out. and with a lot of people at first were hesitant to evacuate because they said irene wasn't that bad. most of the damage of flooding was inland and not here on the coast. as you can see, the coast is just washed away. it's completely gone. as i said, it extends perhaps about 100 yards outs in na direction. the same situation from the north and cape may in the south, down near at alantic city towards the tip of new jersey and the garden state parkway the main highway into that area, which bisects of entire state, has been closed off because they don't want people to go back into that area. it's completely vevacuated, and right now somewhere from here to there is where the storm is expected to hit. we're going to take cover when we have to. we're in a position that's somewhat prekd prekted. it's enough protected we feel safe enough. again, things are deteriorating very quickly by the hour. >> all right. >> reporter: back to you guys. >> thank you, ro
. a lot of people said they were not going to ride it out like they did irene. it's hard to say. you can see some of the windows in some of these high rises where there is power to them, generator power or what have you, but obviously it's very dark down here in lower manhattan with the power that's been shut off on purpose in many areas and that's the con edison said that they are doing that so they can easily -- more easily restore power once this storm goes through. but they've got a lot on their hands tonight, as we mentioned, with that explosion on one of the transformers on the other side. >> ida single, thank you so much. if we can go back to that video that we were just looking at, for people that have not seen the coverage throughout the evening, this is a picture of a crane atop a luxury high rise in midtown manhattan. it has been dangling precariously, dangerously off the top of that building which has become known in manhattan as the global billionaire's club because the nine full floors at the top have been sold to billionaires. two of the dupe pleks are $90 million each. yo
surge right now, that's just the water rise alone with this, 6.6 feet. that's 2.2 feet higher than irene. we're awaiting that high tide coming up. for example, irene was about right here, all right, and what we could see with another two and a half feet is up through here. >> no campaigning for the president. he is locked down at the white house, telephoning governors and mayors and meeting with fema. >> mitt romney is not campaigning but holding what his campaign calls a hurricane relief event coincidentally in battleground ohio. >> we have a lot of goods here and i know there's more coming in and we're going to box these things up in just a minute and put them on some trucks and then we're going to send them into i think it's new jersey. >> new yorkers ordered off the streets last night it was a lonely late night for letterman and fallon. no live audiences to laugh at their jokes. >> got up this morning, turned on the radio and listened for the talk show closings. i have no luck. >> talk show closings. >> yeah. >> that's a play on -- >> wait a minute. i think i hear people banging at t
. >> the fear is it's going to be worse than irene. >> tonight full reports from up and down the east coast. >> it's only a matter of time as this system gets closer. >> governor martin o'malley over the battering in baltimore. and ted strickland on what the storm means for the political storm in ohio. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. sandy is expected to make landfall at this hour on the coast of new jersey. the storm is now a post tropical cyclo cyclone. the path on the northeast corridor has been slow and moving very wide. hundreds of thousands of people in coastal areas have been evacuated up and down the east coast. this is a live shot from delaware. we'll get a live update from the shoreline in just a moment. authorities say new york city and long island could get the worst of the storm surge. sea water could rise up to 11 feet. the damage from sandy was on display hundreds of feet above manhattan today. you're seeing a youtube video of a crane collapsing on the 57th street high-rise. city officials say workers would not be able to access the crane to keep it from falling.
every community is at least 75% or more out at this hour and as we saw with irene and then with the october snowstorm, it can take a long time, perhaps a week or even nine or ten days before the power gets restored for a lot of these folks. >> and that is the latest from old saybrook, connecticutment we want to go back to cape may, new jersey. we told you this is a continually developing story and more weather effects being felt although the worst is over. jay gray is there and i understand it started raining again. >> reporter: yeah, chris, we have seen a little more rain dropping in which is exactly what they don't need in this small community. there's already been some flooding problems. that's going to continue obviously as the advance of rain moves through and really it's slowing down the effort to get out and assess the situation. we're also really seeing intense winds that continue to whip around this area. there is some damage to buildings in the city. there's some damage to the infrastructure here. but, again, we can't get to exactly how much damage becaus
irene hit this area a lot of people evacuated. the coast wasn't hit that hard. the bigger problem was inland. that's why [ inaudible ] behind this time but for the most -- staying behind last time but for now people are pushing out because of the danger, the high winds are obvious. we're in a very protected position, by the way, and we're going to move back if things get worse. but again, we're charting it by the hour every hour and for now, things here are under control, but again it's getting to be a very dangerous situation down here. andrea? >> i was going to ask you that exact question, ron. so you and your crew, you know what to do. but the people who are -- and this is repeating the president's appeal, what chris christie has said, mike bloomberg, the appeal to people who are refusing to evacuate because they are putting first responders in danger and as i'm looking at the pictures of you, ron, the shape of that beach along the jersey shore is never going to be the same. this is going to have to be restored in some way because the enormous erosion already is being washed aw
% or more out at this hour. and as we saw with irene then again with the october snowstorm, it can take a long time, perhaps a week or even nine or ten days before the power gets restored for a lot of folks. >> jeff stecker from wvit. thank you for that update. to the point he was making that it's so dark outside, there's so much water out there, there are so many downed lines. take this advice. this came from the fairfield police chief. "we have limited responsibilities, please stay inside your house and we are expecting massive damage." and i think that that would apply to communities up and down the eastern seaboard. we will continue msnbc's live coverage of hurricane sandy right after this. [ ryan ] it doesn't get any better than endless shrimp at red lobster. you can mix and match all day! [ male announcer ] don't miss red lobster's endless shrimp, just $14.99! try as much as you like, any way you like! like parmesan crusted shrimp. hurry in, offer ends soon! i'm ryan isabell and i see food differently. hurry in, offer ends soon! wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo
this will be worse than hurricane irene last year. they are anticipating this will be worse. here at rehoboth beach, it's a crowded boardwalk. this is for the sea witch festival. a lot of folks coming out. they are not afraid of what's coming. they are actually anticipating that tomorrow they'll keep the festival going tomorrow, but come sunday night, they are expecting things are going to go downhill pretty quickly. monday night is when the event really happens. a lot of rain, a lot of wind. they are anticipating a lot of beach erosion here. as this storm moves further inland, they are also very concerned about the inland flooding. as this moves further northwest, it's going to collide with that cold front. that's where you get that frankenstorm coming into play. that's where it will create snow and rain further up west. >> thanh truong, good to see even with the storm looming, folks on the boardwalk love being on television. appreciate that, sir. we will have more on hurricane sandy here on msnbc. right now we turn back to the race to the white house. back to new york where richard lui has a look
is on script. and that is that this afternoon's tide will be as bad as the perfect storm '92/irene of last year. and that tonight's tide, along with the entirety of long island sound on our side, could be catastrophic. that's what we're planning for. we hope it's avoided somehow and some way, but if you look at all the surge maps, it's connecticut that will be most adversely impacted. >> yeah. and you know what? i covered connecticut for quite some time many years ago. and there are neighborhoods on the coastline that get flooded during a thunderstorm. >> yeah. >> how are you going to keep homes from getting decimated up and down the connecticut coastline if. >> listen, we've ordered evacuations or suggested ev evacuations that affect 362,000 people, one out of every ten residents of the state of connecticut. but it's the small towns and it's the big cities. it's new haven, bridge fort, stamford, norwalk, fairfield, they're all going to be adversely impacted. we're waiting to see. if this hits 11 feet with waves on top of 11 feet, we're talking about dike systems being overrun. that's the sever
that we had an event, hurricane irene, we did achieve a 98% evacuation rate. i think that we're going to fall short of that this time. but, yes, to answer your question, we keep and have been employing all of the residents who were able to flee the city and seek higher ground in a safe shelter somewhere else. >> thank you for your time and please be careful for your citizens as well. they should all heed your warnings and your advice. thank you for coming on. >> you're welcome, reverend al. stay blessed. >> you as well. now let's bring in nbc's meteorologist dylan drier. dylan, where is the eye of the storm right now? >> well, the eye of the storm is actually moving on shore in the atlantic city, northern delaware city and we still have this storm as a strong storm with a very low central pressure. we have been talking about this storm as far as as it being historic event. and with the millibar levels now at 940, that is the lowest central pressure for a hurricane we have ever seen in this region especially. so we are looking at a very intense storm. it means it is a very strong, inte
during hurricane irene, so they knew what to do. they knew exactly when to leave. they got there immediately once they were advised to leave. so we're really proud of these folks in the shelter and, you know, they just seem to be having a good time. they are in a safe place. they've got warm meals and they've got the support of the american red cross to get them through these hard times, because when they go home, they don't know what they're going to expect. they could go home to severe flooding and severe damage to their homes so having that safety net right now is so important. >> well, besides the shelters which obviously are critically important and could continue to be so because as you say of flooding and we're hearing that some of these power outages could be long term, what are the priorities of the services that the red cross will provide in the next couple of days? >> yes, we've already gone ahead and told them and pre-positioned over 100 emergency response vehicles and thousands of relief supplies, cots, blanket, food and deployed odd thousand of volunteers so o
in the northeast. six million were without power after tropical storm irene last year. so tanh, thank you. i appreciate that report, sir. let's get back to politics now, as we've been reporting in person early voting started today here in the sunshine state. that is later than it started for the 2008 election by a week. the legislature haas year cutting the number of early voting days from 14 to eight. how could early voting in florida and elsewhere as well, how could it change the 2012 presidential campaign? i'm joined now by bill schneider, resident fellow at third way. bill, good afternoon to you, sir. >> good afternoon, craig. >> you know, first, let's talk about early voting in general, because it really has become quite the transformative phenomenon in this country when you look at how many people were doing it in 2000 versus here in 2012. how is early voting, how has it changed campaigning for white house in this country? >> well, it certainly has made campaigning far more extensive earlier because people are already voting. so the campaigns have to make their closing arguments weeks
decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the response posed to the staff in benghazi, libya. we will have to wait to see what the response is. host: final question for you -- how was this impacting the journalists that cover the campaign? caller: one thing that we are expecting an impact on, e-mail and electricity service in the washington, d.c. area. there are contingency plans for that kind of emergency. i am not the person in charge of .hat host: bob, thank you so much for covering that force this morning. we would like to hear what you think the impact could be. bill writes in on twitter -- host: looking at some of the front pages of the newspapers as they cover the storm, this is from "the new york daily news." "shot, city braces for a monster." of the store is looking at the potential impact of the storm. "destructive potential of the storm tops the scale." bill, florida, what do you think the impact could be on campaign 2012? >>
shore. >> reporter: well, the fear is it's obviously going to be worse than irene because this storm is tracking to our south. it's going to go inland south of here. so that's going to pile the water up from now, from yesterday through today into tonight. and until the storm goes by us and gets past us on our longitude, then the winds will come back around. and that will be an offshore component of the wind. but that's not going to happen until sometime tomorrow. so in the meantime, the tide right now is trying to go out. it's not having much luck because the wind is blowing in from the northeast at 30 to 35 miles an hour. we're getting some gusts 45 miles an hour. but the worst of the storm is a long way away. we're still more than 40 # 0 miles away. when it comes in, as it gets closer, we'll have gusts as high as hurricane force. once those winds kick up over 60, you'll see the power outages ramping up exponentially. again, the high tide tonight, 8:00 to 8:30 up and down the shore. and that could be coincidental with the landfall, plus we have the full moon, the astronomical effect
with these winds. i was out on the beach with irene for over 12 hours and this is about when i felt it. this storm is still a couple hundred miles away and the winds are gusting over 50 miles per hour. the highest surge will come in at about later this evening and go through this evening we will see the surge 6 to 8 feet. look at the atlantic. it is just ramped up, 10 to 12 footers out there. this is low tide. normally on a typical day you would have 150 feet of beach. it's all gone. and as that next high tide comes in we're going to see the worst of the beach erosion, coastal damage. this whole beach area will be rearranged. so far no reports of any significant damage, but some of the areas south of here, the dunes have been eaten by the wave action and some of the local authorities think some of those homes are going to be hit and fall into the atlantic later on tonight. so, it's only going to get worse from here and inland when these winds crank up over 60 hils per hour, d.c., baltimore, philly away from the beaches this afternoon and tonight that's going to shut down power to millions. once we
's all said and done, the total $20 billion or more. exceeding the damage certainly from irene last year which was about 12 to $16 billion. meantime moody's an lytics estimate economic losses will total $10 billion a day, lost wages, production, sales for businesses. do you think that estimate is on target? >> yeah, i think that estimate is on target but i believe moody's said they're not going to alter their estimate for gdp in the fourth quarter because some of this will be made up and also some of this stuff that gets destroyed you have to put people to work to rebuild it. that actually adds to gross domestic product. it subtracts from the net but adds to the growth. >> one thing i'm being told in my ear, we have an updated death toll i want to pass along to everyone. we now have 27 -- 29, excuse me, 29 confirmed deaths. again, we started this hour it was 18. so the numbers are fluid and moving up rapidly, at least over the last hour that we've seen so far. one thing -- jared, go ahead. >> terrible devastation as you've been reporting all hour. one thing to consider is that insurance
didn't see a whole lot of lights on. a few stayed because irene wasn't so bad. they're going to take their chances on sandy. mayor bloomberg says that's the worst thing you can do, because when you get in trouble and call for help, you're not only endangering your life, you you endanger the life of the emergency responder who comes to help you. chris, back to you. >> they have a lot of shelters set up. anne thompson, thank you so much for the update. >>> we should mention in sports the san francisco giants are world series champs for the second time in three years. they beat the detroit tigers 4-3 in game four last night. a sweep of the series. >>> back in manhattan sandy shut down the stock market. this is the first time this has happened since 9/11. mandy drury is here. could be closed tomorrow i understand. >> that's right, chris. if the nyse is closed tomorrow as well, that's the first time since 1888 that a weather-related event has caused a two-day shutdown. the last time was a blizzard that left drifts as high as 40 feet in the streets of new york city. chris, there have been
on the screen under the name of irene dunn. [laughter] at my age i have from time to time started thinking about the end of things, and it has occurred to me that when my time does come, i hope to go the way my dear old grandfather did can, quiet ri in his sleep -- quietly in the his sleep, not screaming like the passengers in his car. [laughter] andrew made me laugh more than anybody i've ever met. we all loved andrew, and andrew loved us. my wife, ali mills, was loved so much by andrew, and he said i never dreamed that i would be in the same family with the mother from the wonder years. [laughter] and he just was so full of heart, and the thing i loved most about andrew in terms of his public persona was how people on the left hated him until they met him, and then they started loving him. the new yorker sent a woman out to l.a. where we all lived to do a piece on him, and they did a long piece. she spent ten days, he brought the woman over to our house, and i thought they would do a hatchet job, they did a love letter. she loved him. "the new york times" wrote two major pieces about him in th
know, new yorkers take everything in stride. a lot of people road out irene last year. a lot of those people we talked to today say they're not doing this time around. they get a sense that this is a little bit more serious. also to give you an idea, the new york stock exchange is staying open, be u the physical trading floor in lower manhattan will shut down. also, craig, broadway shows are going dark tomorrow. >> that's when you know it's a big deal in the big apple. michelle franzen, thank you so much for that. let's go to tom costello now, the approaching storm already disrupting air travel on the east coast. tom is at reagan national airport. how many cancellations, how many delays can we expect at this point, sir? >> reporter: we're looking at about 5,500 as of right now. we've got really the winds picking up dramatically in d.c. in the last hour and the temperature has developed. we have about 1,400 flights canceled today, tomorrow about 4,500 flights canceled. that's the big players on the east coast, united, delta, us airways, jetblue, all canceling flights as early as tomorr
it gets inland, this is not just a coastal event. it's an inland event as well. tropical storm irene caused more damage inland. this system could dump up to a foot of snow. parts of west virginia, ohio, on into pennsylvania. so andrea, this one is going to be a massive, massive problem probably for days to come. >> all right, al. thank you, and stay safe. dylan dreyer will be here with the rest of the nation's forecast in just a few minutes. >>> hurricane sandy is already impacting the race for the white house. mitt romney and vice president joe biden each cancelled planned weekend appearances in virginia. ron mott is in ohio, he's traveling with vice presidential candidate paul ryan. ron, good morning. >> reporter: it takes 270 electoral votes to win the white house. 18 votes are up for grabs in ohio and they just may be the most important votes of all. along with the weather churning over the atlanta, president obama and mitt romney are whipping up a storm of their own, a campaign blizzard. >> thank you so much! >> reporter: as election day looms just ten days away. friday, a day a
. just like tropical storm irene did last year. the difference is, this is drawing in a lot of cold air from canada. it could produce up to a foot of snow in parts of west virginia, ohio, and pennsylvania. so we're talking about not only a tropical system with tons of rain and flooding and massive power outages but snow as well. the effects of this could be felt for weeks. >> okay, al roker, many thanks for that. >>> our colleagues at the weather channel are following this storm closely as well. we're going have a live report from meteorologist julie martin coming your way at the top of the hour. >>> from there to politics now, ten days to go until the election. today in his weekly address president obama's emphasizing the progress made four years after the wall street crisis. >> our businesses have added more than 5 million new jobs. the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level since i took office. home values are ride rising again and our assembly lines are humming once more. >> mitt romney and paul ryan are looking to gain momentum holding a rally last night in canton. >> i w
